Preparations continue for Barça’s first team. Unlike Tuesday, when the team held two training sessions in the morning and afternoon, this Wednesday there was just one session for the blaugrana, at 9 in the morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Vilanova was able to work with the 19 available footballers from the first team and four from the reserves: Oier, Sergi Roberto, Planas, and Rafinha.
Besides the injured players, the other two absences were Jordi Alba and Montoya, who play their final match at the 2012 Olympic Games later this afternoon.
On Thursday, the team will again hold two training sessions. They will be in the morning and afternoon in Sant Joan Despí, as the squad looks ahead to its next match in Paris on Saturday (19:45).
